Sky Class, we Honor you for Being Spirited

June 23, 2021 | Sossi Essajanian

It has been wonderful to honor each child these final weeks of school. The teachers have also been thinking about each class as a whole.

So here are some final honoring words…

Sky Class, we honor you for being spirited.

Your spirit is playful. From playing “squakers” in the gym to dancing to the Lava Song, you share your playfulness with each other in so many ways. Our morning Chat Times are filled with laughter from the jokes you come up with and the stories you tell. Your wit and sense of humor shines through in so many parts of our day.

Your spirit is loving. There are so many ways that you show the love you have for one another: in the book area with a friend, when you ask someone to join your game, or when you check on one another when you are hurt. It is clear that you care for each other deeply, and as you’ve gotten to know one another you have found so many ways to show your friends how much you love them.

Sky Class, we honor you for being spirited.

With love from your teachers, 

Ms. Greene and Ms. Essajanian

Sky Class 2020-2021

In sign language, this is how to say love…

“Let your eyes look directly forward, and your gaze be straight before you.
Ponder the path of your feet; then all your ways will be sure.”

Proverbs 4:25-26

Teacher, Sky Class

Sossi Essajanian is excited to continue her teaching and learning journey at the Mustard Seed School. She began teaching at the United Nations International School where she worked with children and colleagues from around the world. This inspired her to take a primary teaching position abroad in Nicosia, Cyprus, where she lived and worked for two years.

Ms. Essajanian has a passion for supporting children’s social/emotional skills and learning through a loving and caring classroom community. These are built on creating shared understandings and opportunities for children to identify and express their feelings and of those around them. She believes in creating experiences through pair and group work where learning blossoms through social experiences.

Ms. Essajanian also enjoys reading and talking about books and continues to pursue her second passion: editing. She’s worked in various editorial capacities in newspapers, magazines, and books. She was recently excited to serve as the development editor of a children’s book about engineering and is looking forward to leading some tinkering investigations of her own with her students!

In her free time Ms. Essajanian runs, swims laps, and likes to take long walks to explore the world around her.
